After struggling in the ODI series, West Indies responded strongly in the first T20I match as they posted a total of 157 runs in their innings. Earlier in the day, Rohit Sharma had won the toss and chose to bowl first, however, the West Indies batsmen came up top in the shortest format, which is clearly not surprising given their history.
Nicholas Pooran scored a stunning knock of 61 runs in 43 deliveries, and he was ably supported by Keiron Pollard (24 off 19) and Kyle Mayers (31 off 24) to help the visitors post a score of 157.
Team India therefore will need to score 158 runs in their chase to win the first T20I.
